“Doing news is like an addiction.”
#SmallTownNewsHBO, an @HBO original documentary series about an independent news network in the heart of Nevada’s desert, is streaming this August on @HBOMax.
Small Town News: KPVM Pahrump, a six-part, half-hour documentary series, pulls back the curtain on life at a privately-owned TV station in the small desert town of Pahrump, Nevada, revealing a colorful cast of characters in front of and behind the cameras. Executive produced by Emmy®-winning filmmakers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (HBO’s “Catch and Kill: The Podcast Tapes,” “Carrie Fisher: Wishful Drinking”), along with Nikki Calabrese and Nelson Walters, Small Town News: KPVM Pahrump provides an entertaining glimpse into a scrappy, hardworking local news broadcaster looking to expand into a bigger market during challenging times. With warmth and humor, the series celebrates the can-do spirit, community pride and political diversity among the station’s charismatic and often humorous employees.
The documentary series premieres with two back-to-back episodes on Monday, August 2nd on HBO and HBO Max at 9pm ET.
